There is authenticity and urgency in these songs. J Shogren’s music draws from the past but is very much original and in the present. Standouts are Audubon’s Birds of America and Swampland with perhaps the most memorable line… “love can be so kind to an unremarkable life like mine.” Grady Kirkpatrick, Wyoming Public Radio Program Director {voted #2 in 2016 by WPR listeners}

"This could well be one of the first albums, in the hundreds of reviews written, that I simply can't compare to anyone else or even come close to slotting into a genre." American Roots UK
